Multi-Channel Amps

Parasound ZoneMaster 1250 Amplifier

Parasound today introduced the ZoneMaster Model 1250 12-channel power amplifier with high power and multiple configuration modes, served in a versatile 2U rack-mount form factor that addresses the many needs of industry professionals.

Connections for 24 speakers combined with 2-ohm stability allow the use of two speakers per channel. It is rated at 12×50 watts into 8 ohms, and 12×90 into 4 ohms. Each channel pair can be bridged to deliver 6×160 watts into 8 ohms and 6×200 watts into 4 ohms RMS, all channels driven.

There are independent line inputs and level controls for each channel. There are two Bus inputs with looping outputs, plus a speaker-level input that can be routed to any zone. There are independent 12-volt and audio triggers with looping trigger outputs for each zone, and a global 12-volt trigger.

Detachable Phoenix-style speaker connectors accept up to 12-gauge wire. The Model 1250 offers exceptionally “green” power consumption with 0.5 watt standby power consumption to meet Energy Star and European Union specifications.

“The ZoneMaster Model 1250 is a game changer in a category populated by mediocre generic IC amplifiers,” said company president, Richard Schram. “The Class AB input stage and premium Class D power stage generate performance consistent with Parasound’s heritage. It is as useful for distributed audio as it is for home theater, where it could augment an AV receiver with 3×160 plus 4×50 watts.”
